Police to crack down on overweight lorries on London Road, West Thurrock
3:00pm Thursday 6th February 2014 in News
POLICE will crack down on large lorries using a busy residential road in West Thurrock.
A survey by Thurrock Council found lots of heavy goods vehicles are breaching a 7.5 tonne weight restriction on London Road, which was introduced last August.
Councillor Andy Smith, in charge of highways, said: “We brought in this weight restriction to try to stop this menace. Now we have solid proof lorry drivers are flouting the rules.”
A police spokesman said: “The Commercial Vehicle Unit will carry out patrols in the area of London Road, West Thurrock, following concerns raised.”
